PSI’s new 40-liter and 53-liter gas engines were front and center during the POWER-GEN International Trade Show Dec. 4-6, 2018, in Orlando, Florida.
Both engines have industry-leading global power ratings, with the 40-liter engine rated for a natural gas-fueled power range of 600 to 900 kWe, while the 53-liter engine has a range of 800 kWe to 1.25 MWe. The engines are designed for energy market applications including electric power generation and oil and gas exploration.
“Our new engines are best in class in technology, power density and are the most competitive in their power range,” CEO John Miller said.
The 40-liter engine received EPA certification in October 2018. The 53-liter engine is scheduled to launch following certification in the first quarter of 2019. The certifications cover stationary as well as mobile, off-road applications for constant speed operation using natural gas (NG) and propane (LPG).
In addition to its new gas engines, PSI displayed new 20-liter and 40-liter diesel engines. The diesel engines are the first of their kind to be developed by the company and reflect PSI’s effort to expand the power solutions options it can offer to customers. The 20-liter diesel engine is rated for 550 to 625 kWe, while the 40-liter diesel engine is rated for 650 kWe to 1.25 MWe. Both engines will be US EPA Stationary Emergency Certified (Tier II / III) emissions and will be available in the first half of 2019.
The company credits its ability to offer high-power engines to its strategic investment and collaboration agreement with Weichai. PSI has access to Weichai’s manufacturing facilities and supply chain network, and both companies share best practices in engine research and development, as well as manufacturing, procurement and distribution.
